Linux People need to build a new "old-lady Mint-OS".. "Mint Julep"...

My 87 relative flatly refuses to permit me to install Mint in her Notebook, because she says she's "not confident with mint yet"... I built her a Mint desktop.. She likes it, but she's slow at learning new things at 87...
I wonders how many more times I'll have to teach her how to save Internet files in Mint..? Maybe she wants Me to save the 4000 emails in her XP OE..? Probably... "WhooH! "XP", I shudders all the ways to me timbers when I thinks that I gotta spend about 4 to 6 hours restoring her notebook's XP OS.. when Mint takes only just over an hour... You might say XP is one of my worst nightmares.. "Twas the XP-nightmare before christmas.. and all through the house"......

Would be nice if there was a simpleton mint-tutorial that teaches mindless and dying people to operate Linux-Mint smoothly...
Everything must be as step by step as it can get... It's all gotta-be "bedrock yubbadubbadoo" stuff...
But I just can't get my stuff down-to "yubbado mentality", not since grade-one... same as that I lose my cookies from the smells of a rural carcass dump... Not good to be in the middle of one when you suddenly realizes you shouldn't be.. "whooh!.. It feels like "escaping hell itself"... Every human should experience a carcass dump at least once in their lives, to see and know what we do to our planet's living things...

Maybe Linux People need to build an "old-lady Mint-OS"..?
Maybe call it "Mint Julep"...
Show some honest substantial respect to the Elderly...
